Swiss-Belhotel International has opened its first 4-star hotel on Indonesia's Biak Island, offering 102 rooms and event spaces for business guests.

Located in the northern coast of Papua, the Swiss-Belhotel Cendrawasih Biak is adjacent to the Hadi supermarket and department store — the largest shopping center on the island, and is nearby major transport links such as the Frans Kaisipo International Airport (under 4km away) and Biak seaport (less than 2km away).

Amenities include the all-day dining Swiss-Café restaurant, a pool, fitness centre and spa.

Event planners can pick from seven meeting rooms hosting up to 200 guests, or the three multi-functional ballrooms which can hold up to 800 guests.

This opening marks Swiss-Belhotel International's 75th hotel in Indonesia, and the 5th hotel in the Papua region after Jayapura, Manokwari, Merauke, and Sorong — further strengthening the group's presence in East Indonesia.

Gavin M. Faull, Swiss-Belhotel International Chairman, and President added that the group "recognises the potential of Indonesia and we are excited to have a strong presence in Papua with the opening of Swiss-Belhotel Cendrawasih, Biak. This hotel promises to be instrumental in enhancing the city to become a popular destination in Papua".
